Currently {01.09.11}

eating... red velvet cupcakes (with cream cheese frosting!) that I made last night, though they don't taste exactly like as I had imagined.

Mini version for Nathan to share with his friends after school.

reading... The Dressmaker by Posie Graeme-Evans. It's been a while since I've had a chance to read for pleasure and I found this the other day when I stranded myself at the mall. For $5, I thought I'd give it a try and so far I'm enjoying it.

wondering... how to keep my almost 9-month old away from the garbage/drawers/wires/shoes without confining him to his play centre... or a laundry basket.

Or else this happens...

wanting... more time to work on creative projects. So many ideas swirling around in my head!

enjoying... the warmer weather. Not a cloud in the sky today!

disliking... sacrificing Caleb's second nap to pick up Nathan from school... every day. How do I avoid this?

attempting... to learn the roles and balance the responsibilities of this super-stay-at-home-mom-trophy-wife-pseudo-artist person that I apparently want to become.


  1. I remember the days of trying to keep my babies our of everything :) Now they are nine and four!

    And the nap situation happened with my second child, too. The only solution I came up with was trying to car pool a few days with other parents. And my mother-in-law helped a bit. Otherwise, it was just one of those things I resigned myself to since she was a second child.

  2. Yum, I could go for some red velvet cupcakes! :)

  3. Those cupcakes look delish! Love the pic of the boy and his mess. That's going to be me before I know it.

  4. Anything called The Dressmaker sounds interesting to me.

  5. yum!

    and i never figured out a way to keep my boys out of everything... sigh.

  6. nathan and i liked the red velvet cupcakes :)
